Comparative study on the distribution patterns of P2X1–P2X6 receptor immunoreactivity in the brainstem of the rat and the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus): Association with catecholamine cell
The present study investigated the topographical distribution of P2X1–P2X6 receptor subtypes in the rat and common marmoset hindbrain by immunohistochemistry. In addition, double‐labelingExpand

A quantitative model of purinergic junctional transmission of calcium waves in astrocyte networks.
A principal means of transmitting intracellular calcium (Ca2+) waves at junctions between astrocytes involves the release of the chemical transmitter adenosine triphosphate (ATP). A model of thisExpand

Stress and trauma: BDNF control of dendritic-spine formation and regression
Chronic restraint stress leads to increases in brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) mRNA and protein in some regions of the brain, e.g. the basal lateral amygdala (BLA) but decreases in otherExpand

Metabotropic receptor activation, desensitization and sequestration-I: modelling calcium and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate dynamics following receptor activation.
A mathematical account is given of the processes governing the time courses of calcium ions (Ca2+), inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3)) and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP(2)) in singleExpand

Origins of blood volume change due to glutamatergic synaptic activity at astrocytes abutting on arteriolar smooth muscle cells.
The cellular mechanisms that couple activity of glutamatergic synapses with changes in blood flow, measured by a variety of techniques including the BOLD signal, have not previously been modelled.Expand

A systematic review and meta-analysis of magnetic resonance imaging measurement of structural volumes in posttraumatic stress disorder
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating condition associated with mild to moderate cognitive impairment and with a prevalence rate of up to 22% in veterans. This systematic review andExpand

The formation of synapses in striated muscle during development.
1. A study has been made of the formation of synapses in developing striated muscles which receive either a focal (the rat hemidiaphragm) or a distributed (the avian anterior latissimus dorsi)Expand

Stress-Induced Grey Matter Loss Determined by MRI Is Primarily Due to Loss of Dendrites and Their Synapses
Stress, unaccompanied by signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, is known to decrease grey matter volume (GMV) in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) and hippocampus but not the amygdala in humans.Expand

Purine Release from Spinal Cord Microglia after Elevation of Calcium by Glutamate
The propagation of Ca2+ waves in a network of microglial cells, after its initiation by glutamate, is mediated by purinergic transmission. In this study, we investigated the mechanisms by whichExpand
